July 2010 photo challenge - shoot from a different/unusual angle

Hi members - it's july!
Got any suggestions re: this month's challenge?

What about shoot your pet from a different/unusual angle?

Let's try and get some ideas going today and the one with the most support becomes the challenge.

Thx! Marko

Have we done favorite napping spots?

How about special moment shots? or a favorite shot of your pet?

Ok members suggestion posts merged and this month's challenge is shooting your pet from an unusual angle. This can be a very creative challenge so hope to see some cool shots.

Ok then - who is going first.

Thx!

Marko

Does getting down at their level count as a different angle?

So many beautiful little faces here. I think this is my favorite thread

Not sure if I got it right, but I'm assuming the shot should be anything other than a straight on shot?

I was reading a thread earlier about shooting without using the viewfinder and I totally agreed with Rick. Sometimes you just can't get low enough quick enough to get the shot you want. Trust your autofocus
